    How do I disable palm-check on my trackpad?


    I have an HP Pavilion x360 Convertible 14m-dh1xxx laptop. I need to use the keyboard and the mouse at the same time for some tasks, yet I cannot find a way to disable palm-check. I start typing and my trackpad stops working. How can I fix this?

    :)

    Disabling Palm Rejection for Trackpad

    How do I do that, I am going nuts just trying to do quick adjustments on a doc and getting stopped by this stupid palm rejection that is nothing more than a time lock on the trackpad after typing. I have windows precision drivers, so it should be controlled
    somewhere in windows right?

  3. Disabling Palm Rejection for Trackpad

    Hi GIme. I'm Greg, an installation specialist and 9 year Windows MVP, here to help you.

    Update the touchpad software from the PC's Support Downloads webpage.

    Then check the controls to adjust as necessary at Settings > Devices > Touchpad.

    Also there under Additional Options click the touchpad tab on Mouse Properties to adjust any settings needed there, including ticking the box to "Disable touchpad when external pointing device is attached" to avoid palm-drag on touchpad causing cursor to jump.

    See sample setting for Palm rejection here:

    . Since you didnt' give your PC make/model you'll need to search for this yourself or report it back so we can search for you.

    I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and let us know how it goes. I will keep working with you until it's resolved.

    How do I disable palm-check on my trackpad?

    Unable to disable laptop trackpad after Windows 10 update (Feb 2019)

    Hi Shawn, I'm Graeme, an independent adviser here to help.

    One way to disable the trackpad would be to use Device Manager. Here are the steps you can follow to do this:

    - Press Windows Key+X and choose Device Manager.

    - Find your trackpad in the list.

    - Right-click the trackpad, and choose Uninstall Device.

    This should stop the trackpad from functioning. If you want to re-enable it, you can follow the same steps and choose Enable instead.

    Hopefully this helps! Please let me know if you need further support. Thanks!
